15 Rules of Netiquette for Online Discussion Boards

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 14, 9:21 PM

This infographic is designed for college, but in fact the rules apply to students of all ages. Teaching students how to be good citizens online is a component of digital citizenship. The 15 rules in the infographic are wise to follow not only on online discussion boards, but may be considered a foundation to build your digital identity, tattoo, footprint...you choose the word that works best for you.

With younger students we may need to modify some language or introduce the rules over a period of time, helping them to learn just what good netiquette is.

A Learning Secret: Don’t Take Notes with a Laptop

A Learning Secret: Don’t Take Notes with a Laptop | Curriculum Design | Scoop.it
Students who used longhand remembered more and had a deeper understanding of the material

 

Laptops do in fact allow students to do more, like engage in online activities and demonstrations, collaborate more easily on papers and projects, access information from the internet, and take more notes.  Indeed, because students can type significantly faster than they can write, those who use laptops in the classroom tend to take more notesthan those who write out their notes by hand.  Moreover, when students take notes using laptops they tend to take notes verbatim, writing down every last word uttered by their professor.

Obviously it is advantageous to draft more complete notes that precisely capture the course content and allow for a verbatim review of the material at a later date.  Only it isn’t.  New research by Pam Mueller and Daniel Oppenheimer demonstrates that students who write out their notes on paper actually learn more.  Across three experiments, Mueller and Oppenheimer had students take notes in a classroom setting and then tested students on their memory for factual detail, their conceptual understanding of the material, and their ability to synthesize and generalize the information.  Half of the students were instructed to take notes with a laptop, and the other half were instructed to write the notes out by hand.  As in other studies, students who used laptops took more notes.  In each study, however, those who wrote out their notes by hand had a stronger conceptual understanding and were more successful in applying and integrating the material than those who used took notes with their laptops.

 

What drives this paradoxical finding?  Mueller and Oppenheimer postulate that taking notes by hand requires different types of cognitive processing than taking notes on a laptop, and these different processes have consequences for learning.  Writing by hand is slower and more cumbersome than typing, and students cannot possibly write down every word in a lecture.  Instead, they listen, digest, and summarize so that they can succinctly capture the essence of the information.  Thus, taking notes by hand forces the brain to engage in some heavy “mental lifting,” and these efforts foster comprehension and retention.  By contrast, when typing students can easily produce a written record of the lecture without processing its meaning, as faster typing speeds allow students to transcribe a lecture word for word without devoting much thought to the content.

3 Steps To Build Interactive Lessons With Learning Map

3 Steps To Build Interactive Lessons With Learning Map | Curriculum Design | Scoop.it

 

There are two main reasons that drive us to build online lessons in a slightly different way, by using Learning map: cognitive learning theory and fast - paced world with increasing sensory overload. In this post I will summarize main steps in building interactive online lessons using Learning map format.

 

So the problem was, how to design and structure the lesson according to cognitive learning theory to ensure, that our learners will stay focused and retain information in this information overloaded world. We found the solution in Learning map which integrates planning, creating, delivering of your lessons, collaboration/communication and evaluation in one virtual canvas. It enables you to pull together disparate bits of information and present them in a memorable and digestible form.

In this post I will summarize main steps in building lessons using Learning map format.

 

1. Break your lesson into several single information units (SIU)

2. Connect several SIU-s in a more memorable way

3. Support interaction
